Barchester Towers, Trollope's most popular novel, is the second of the six Chronicles of Barsetshire. The Chronicles follow the intrigues of ambition and love in the cathedral town of Barchester. Trollope was of course interested in the Church, that pillar of Victorian society - in its susceptibility to corruption, hypocrisy, and blinkered conservatism - but the Barsetshire novels are no more ecclesiastical' than his Palliser novels are political'. It is the behaviour of the individuals within a power structure that interests him. In this novel Trollope continues the story of Mr Harding andh

The diary of Samuel Pepys : a new and complete transcription by Samuel Pepys( Book )
1 edition published in 1942 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""The diary which Samuel Pepys kept from January 1660 to May 1669 ... is one of our greatest historical records and ... a major work of English literature," writes the renowned historian Paul Johnson. A witness to the coronation of Charles II, the Great Plague of 1665, and the Great Fire of 1666, Pepys chronicled the events of his day. Originally written in a cryptic shorthand, Pepys's diary provides an astonishingly frank and diverting account of political intrigues and naval, church, and cultural affairs, as well as a quotidian journal of daily life in London during the Restoration."--Jacket

The French revolution : a history by Thomas Carlyle( Book )
1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1837 Thomas Carlyle published his work The French Revolution: A History and overnight became a celebrity. € The work was filled with a passionate intensity, hitherto unknown in historical writing. In a politically-charged Europe, filled with fears and hopes of revolution, Carlyle's account of the motivations and urges that inspired the events in France became powerfully relevant. Carlyle's style emphasised this, continually pointing to the urgency of action - often using the present tense. For him, chaotic events demanded 'heroes' to take control over the competing forces erupting with

Twenty years after by Alexandre Dumas( Book )
1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Twenty years after was serialized in the magazine Le Siecle from January to August 1845: The year is now 1648, twenty years since the close of the last story. Louis XIII has died, as has Cardinal Richelieu, and while the crown of France may sit upon the head of Anne of Austria as Regent for the young Louis XIV, the real power resides with the Cardinal Mazarin, her secret husband. D'Artagnan is now a lieutenant of musketeers, and his three friends have retired to private life. Athos turned out to be a nobleman, the Comte de la Fere, and has retired to his home with his son, Raoul de Bragelonne. Aramis, whose real name is D'Herblay, has followed his intention of shedding the musketeer's cassock for the priest's robes, and Porthos has married a wealthy woman, who left him her fortune upon her death. But trouble is stirring in both France and England
Meditations of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus by Marcus Aurelius( Book )
1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Translated from the Greek as a collaborative effort by Francis Hutcheson (1694-1746) and the classicist James Moor (1712-1779), The Meditations of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus became a highly influential work in the philosophy of the Scottish Enlightenment. In their translation and notes to the text, Hutcheson and Moor celebrate the Stoic ideal of an orderly universe governed by a benevolent God. The translation and notes also shed light on Hutcheson's other writings: above all, perhaps, on his conception of "true religion" as a religion of virtue, benevolence, and public spirit for an enlightened age." "Hutcheson contrasts the divisive sectarianism exhibited by Christians in Scotland and elsewhere with Marcus's recommendations of serenity and resignation to the will of the Creator. In light of the warmth of feeling Hutcheson expresses in his remarks, it is not surprising that he took pains to conceal his role (and Moor's) in the composition of the introductory "Life of the Emperor" and in the notes." "The edition of The Meditations that is reproduced here was published in 1742. It is the first of five editions published by Robert Foulis and is the only Foulis edition of the English translation published during Hutcheson's lifetime. In this new Liberty Fund edition, editors Moore and Silverthorne clarify the respective contributions of Hutcheson and Moor and identify persons and occurrences that appear in the text. The editors also explain Hutcheson and Moor's motivation in undertaking the translation and discuss the challenge Hutcheson faced in translating the technical Stoic vocabulary used by Marcus."--BOOK JACKET
